'Racist' Donald Trump 'used N-word,' says ex-White House aide

Omarosa says she has dirt on Donald Trump... and it's racial

Omarosa says she has dirt on Donald Trump... and it's racial

On Friday, George Conway, husband of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway, said Omarosa's claims in "Unhinged" that Trump used racial slurs about him are "absurd" and "not credible."

Former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault-Newman claims in her new book that President Trump is a "racist" who repeatedly uses the N-word and that a tape exists of him saying it. According to an excerpt obtained by the Washington Post, Omarosa writes in the book that after her dismissal from the White House, she received a $15,000 a month job offer from Lara Trump to join the election campaign in exchange for signing an ironclad NDA.

Manigault Newman claims the existence of recordings of Trump using racist terms like the N-word on the set of "The Apprentice", according to the Guardian, though she says she did not hear Trump use that word herself.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters here in New Jersey, where Trump is on vacation, that the book is "riddled with lies and false accusations". Sure. However, when it comes to dishonest White House castoffs, I'd personally prefer her scorched-Earth approach over the Steve Bannon, Sean Spicer, and Reince Priebus style of continually carrying Trump's water long after the boss continually humiliated them or tossed them aside.

Earlier this week, The Daily Beast reported that Manigault had secretly recorded Trump on multiple occasions and used the recordings as leverage to help her secure her book deal.

The White House responded by slamming the book and its author and chastising the press for writing about it. "It's sad that a disgruntled former White House employee is trying to profit off these false attacks, and even worse that the media would now give her a platform".

She later told NPR, however, that she had heard the president say that word. She served as director of communications for the White House office of public liaison before her dismissal last December. "Using the N-word was not just the way he talks but, more disturbing, it was how he thought of me and African Americans as a whole".

According to a published report by NPR, when asked about the discrepancy, Omarosa said the reporter must not have read the book (she had, according to NPR) and pointed to a section, which describes her calling one of her "sources" about the tape.

Manigault Newman is expected to appear on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday to discuss her book ahead of a national book tour.

Newman claims she was sacked after coming close to get her hands on the tape said to contain the racist slurs, which Apprentice producers have refused to release for contractual reasons.

George Conway has not shied away from criticizing Trump on Twitter.
